Greetings Unto the Debatable Lands, Canton of Steltonwald and College of Cour d’Or from your Captain of Archers, Brandubh,
It has been my great pleasure to serve as the Baronial Captain of Archers for the past 2 years, however now I am being pulled in a different direction and must relinquish the Archery Marshallate. To that end I am calling for letters on intent for Debatable Lands Captain of Archers to serve as Group Marshal for the Barony. Letters of intent should include a brief SCA resume, especially including service as target archery marshal, running ranges, teaching, running practices, assisting at any of these, and be addressed to Brandubh – Captain of Archers, and Count Isenwulf – Baronial Knight marshal. I stepped up to this position in April 2014, and plan to step down in April 2016.
Now onto the job itself. The position of Captain of Archers is a deputy position to the Group Office of the Knight Marshal. Captain of archers is not an office, and does not have a vote on the financial committee. The job itself is to ensure that weekly practices are run, and announcements go out about their schedules, or cancellations; to serve as the Archery Point of contact for the barony; and to assist local events with archery. The barony has many loaner bows, arrows, targets, and stands which must be inventoried for the exchequer each year. Outdoor practices usually run from April 15 – November 15, depending on weather.
If you are interested in this position please feel free to contact me.
Brandubh, Baronial Captain of Archers
